Success! Kinda... Working on this for the last 4 hours and I've came up with a result. When I issue my line
@array=$telnet->cmd(string => 'ls', prompt => '/=>/');
it STOPS at the first prompt where the ls is being issued. I changed my code to
@array=$telnet->cmd(string => 'ls', prompt =>'/ls/');
my output is => (the prompt before the ls). I tested this with another switch which has a different output and had a unique word in it (free) and it produced all info up to that word which is what I believe it's supposed to do. Now I guess what my question is, why is my cmd picking up the first prompt and not the second after the output?
